Well, let's see. El Salvador's music is a mixture of Mayan, African, Pipil, Lenca and Spanish influences. The most common favorite genres are salsa, cumbia, hip hop and reggaeton. Anything that makes us shake our booties, we like it. :D

This video is a mix of Cumbias.

I kinda wish I was at a Latin Nightclub right now dancing my butt off. *Dances in her head*.

And for kicks, I found El Salvador's National Anthem.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMEbDU9XUPY

CORO:
Saludemos la patria orgullosos
De hijos suyos podernos llamar;
Y juremos la vida animosa,
Sin descanso a su bien consagrar.
PRIMERA ESTROFA
De la paz en la dicha suprema,
Siempre noble soñó El Salvador;
Fue obtenerla su eterno problema,
Conservarla es su gloria mayor.
Y con fe inquebrantable el camino
Del progreso se afana en seguir
Por llenar su grandioso destino,
Conquistarse un feliz porvenir.
Le protege una férrea barrera
Contra el choque de ruin deslealtad,
Desde el día que en su alta bandera
Con su sangre escribió: ¡LIBERTAD!
CORO
SEGUNDA ESTROFA
Libertad es su dogma, es su guía
Que mil veces logró defender;
Y otras tantas, de audaz tiranía
Rechazar el odioso poder.
Dolorosa y sangrienta es su historia,
Pero excelsa y brillante a la vez;
Manantial de legítima gloria,
Gran lección de espartana altivez.
No desmaya en su innata bravura,
En cada hombre hay un héroe inmortal
Que sabrá mantenerse a la altura
De su antiguo valor proverbial.
CORO
TERCERA ESTROFA
Todos son abnegados, y fieles
Al prestigio del bélico ardor
Con que siempre segaron laureles
De la patria salvando el honor.
Respetar los derechos extraños
Y apoyarse en la recta razón
Es para ella, sin torpes amaños
Su invariable, más firme ambición.
Y en seguir esta línea se aferra
Dedicando su esfuerzo tenaz,
En hacer cruda guerra a la guerra:
Su ventura se encuentra en la paz.

English translation:


CHORUS:
Let us salute the motherland, Proud
To be called her children;
And swear courageous life,
Tirelessly devote their well.
FIRST VERSE
Of peace enjoyed in perfect happiness,
El Salvador has always nobly dreamed;
Achieve this has been her eternal proposition,
Keep it, her greatest glory.
With inviolable faith, the way
Progress strives to continue
Fulfill her high destiny,
Achieve a happy future.
A stern barrier protects her
Against the clash of vile disloyalty,
From the day when her lofty banner
With his blood wrote: FREEDOM!
CHORUS
SECOND VERSE
Freedom is her dogma and her guide
A thousand times she has defended it;
And as many of atrocious tyranny
Repelled The hateful power.
Bloody and sad history,
But sublime and brilliant at once;
Source of legitimate glory,
Great lesson in Spartan pride.
Not waver in his innate bravery
In every man there is an immortal hero
Who knows how to keep up
From proverbial valor of old.
CHORUS
THIRD VERSE
All are dedicated and faithful
The tradition of warlike ardor
With that always reaped fame
By saving the motherland's honor.
Respect the rights of others
And rely on the right reason
It is for her, without infamous intrigue
His constant and most firm ambition.
And in following this line she persists
Dedicating her tenacious efforts
In giving hard battle for battle;
Her happiness is found in peace.

Wonderful thread!

@ Ole Sk, I had never heard Macedonian music before! I have heard a lot of Greek music, there's an annual local festival (and yes, I know about the Great Dispute - enough said) but it is different - I can hear it.

What are the folk instruments in that video? I found a video showing them but they are mostly new to me.

As to "Deliverance", it's justly a good and well-known movie - but I'd rather represent the USA with something more than a scene thought up by screenwriters. :sped:
Dueling instruments DO feature in "mountain music" (better known as "Bluegrass") and so does spontaneous "flat footing" dancing. Here's one of my favorites, found originally on Public TV's "Song of the Mountains" show from the heart of the Blue Ridge area of VA and NC. They do "dress the part" a bit, but are as modern as any of us and have played in Europe.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0E_QPwLdqeI&feature=related

How do I come by this, being northwest rather than southeast? My g-g-grandfolks walked the Great Plains to get here from there! We still "twang" if you get us a-goin'. :wink:

(Dear Flake - we do TOO have "a culture", you just have to go some to find it.) 8)

The culture represented here is an amazing combination of traditional Elizabethan English, Scots, Irish, GERMAN, Norse, Swedish, Polish, various African and native American peoples. If you've ever heard Hardanger Fiddling, you'll recognize the Norsk component right away. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Di1F8GUvEtg

Some of the elements of the dance "steps" are still seen in Ireland and the mountains of the German-speaking countries, and in parts of Africa, and at Indian Pow-wows. The banjo as we know it is a descendant of an African instrument. The "hog nose" dulcimer is a medieval instrument and the "mountain" dulcimer is shaped like a European fiddle. Almost anything on the right-hand sidebar of that first page is worth a listen.

(And in fine Celtic tradition, the sad songs are sung to rousing melodies and the songs of love are played like dirges. Ramm-fans will feel it right away!)

If I've left out anybody, give a holler and I'll come a-runnin'! :hug:

^ Quite the performance!

Iconic Canadian folksinger Gordon Lightfoot's tribute to the Canadian Pacific Railway - that helped build our nation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yzo6Otpg ... re=related

^ I'd forgotten this one! Gordon Lightfoot's railway trilogy was a favorite of my "folksinger" era.

(I can't help but feel this trilogy is responsible in part for "Pirates of the Saskatchewan" by the "Arrogant Worms".
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0E_QPwLdqeI&feature=related my now-favorite Canadian folksy group.)

No folks - Canadian culture is not "just like" USA culture. Many of the same roots, but NOT the same, no more than a red floribunda rose is the same as a yellow tea rose! A rose is NOT a rose is not...

Hah our political dispute with Greece is widely known ... but however I think that Greek music is beautiful.
Here are several traditional instruments.

1. Zurla

2. Tapan

3. Kaval
Image
4.Tambura

Right here on Wikipedia is described nicely for those who want to learn more about Macedonian music
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_t ... _Macedonia

And i must say that I love the sound of Latin American music. Very cheerful, just for my taste. I often go to latino, and salsa parties :)

This is just a silly one as I know it isn't the kind of 'traditional' music everyone is talking about, but I do come from a part of the world that is considered the home of Metal, the West Midlands in England. And from my own town specifically, well I have to show off here...

I love this thread!

One of my favourite African songs is Qongqothwane (aka the click click song) by the late Miriam Makeba. It is sung in Xhosa - I can try to find a translation as well - couldn't find one quite yet...
This song always brings a little tear to my eye :cry: it's very moving, like a lot of traditional African music

Image

And Impi (a Zulu song) by Juluka and Johnny Clegg - such a feel good song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTE04OAi_tg&feature=related

Just had to post a live version as well of Impi by Johnny Clegg (our white Zulu) as he is generally referred to
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0edeDy5yZ-s&feature=related

Aaaaand some township music - also known as Kwaito
Nkalakatha by Kwaito artist Mandoza - this song is sooooo popular at South African weddings and in clubs - it's fun to do the traditional "gumboot dance" to :D :D :D
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqkVq3u4_fY

Enjoy

Just finished listening to Impi - what an amazing, historical and simply beautiful song! Can't wait to listen to the rest! :bounce:

@Beekay and Ole - I have posted a link with some background and explanation of the song - lyrics as well :) - I'll try find a translation of the chorus...

If you scroll down a little past the lyrics - there is a description of the Impi or Zulu soldier body and of the battle that was fought as well as a bit of Zulu culture :)
http://www.linksouthafrica.co.nz/Modules/CMS/Templates/InfoArticle.aspx?url=homeKnowledge-BaseArticle-2About-South-Africa%2fzulu-impi-and-south-african-dance&contentpageid=6cb626fa-b07b-4fd0-be89-3584fcc522c4&templateid=83292af2-c3b6-47bd-bb57-bc7217d5d7af

Sorry Beekay, I also couldn't see the link - I must have messed something up when I posted the link :oops: - it was the Miriam Makeba click click song

Here it is again (hopefully working this time) :)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tSJ7L_IRBs

Enjoy!
